His ongoing fundraising efforts will continue to support the team, reflecting his belief in the importance of giving back to those who safeguard the well-being of mountain enthusiasts.
The photographer’s initiative serves as a reminder of the vital role played by the CMRT and the broader community’s support in ensuring their operations can continue.
